Sara’s mom emailed me about makeup, and I went to their home in Aledo to do her makeup. Luckily they were extremely patient, because Spencer was in tow, and had just woken up from a nap.
Sara is beautiful and has a naturally exotic look. She wanted to go vintage.(Something tells me this is a trend….) I tried to meet halfway with a smokier cat eye, lashes, and a pop of teal in the inner corner.(I am in love with teal lately, sorry. Nails are teal, I wear teal eyeliner, I wish I had a teal unicorn….)
Anyway, Sara and her mom were so great, Sara is a theater buff and is currently in Aledo’s production of “Fiddler on the Roof” and is planning to enter Auburn in the fall with a double major of Theater and Public Relations.
This is Sara, she’s going places!!

Congratulations Amy, you look stunning!

Seems there’s a trend going on, bride’s seem to be diggin’ on the Mad Men phenomenon and the look seems to work on just about everyone.

Amy Buresh was referred to me by Shampoo Salon, where Kari is doing her hair today. I went up to the Sheraton to do her makeup this morning, and found great bone structure, strong, deep set eyes,perfectly threaded brows, and a sparkling and inviting smile.

Amy is not a big makeup wearer, and I used minimal products for this look. Not much as far as eyeshadow, liquid liner smudged a little bit on the outer corners with a black eyeshadow, and lots of mascara.

I used the new HD ready powder by Jane Iredale, and I gotta say, it’s miraculous for “erasing” pores. She was a little iffy about red lips, but I used Damned Velvet Matte Pencil by NARS(a deep wine), topped off with Indian Red Lip Stain Gloss by NARS(a deep brick red) and it was exactly right on her.

Later I will post her finished look, but she isn’t finished with Kari at Shampoo yet. I can’t wait to see her hair!

I had the honor of doing Halie’s makeup for her wedding in York Harbor, Maine. She wore a tea length dress, a vintage styled hairpiece, and wanted makeup to reflect the feel of her wedding as well as her attire. It was a classic Americana event.

I think she looks straight out of Mad Men. She touched up her red lips throughout the evening, but the rest of her makeup was fresh and simple. Minimal upkeep.

Congratulations, Halie, I love you!!
